Lil' Inker Designs June Release Day 3!

Well, it's the last day of our new release hop at Lil' Inker Designs and I'm super excited to show off these last couple products.  Hopefully, you started out at the the Lil' Inker Blog so you don't miss a stop on the hop and have come here from the amazing Lisa's blog.  If you are feeling a little lost, make sure you hop back to the Lil' Inker Blog to get back on the trail of fun.  You can also check out the Lil' Inker Store where all of the new release goodies, and a whole lot more, are ready and waiting for you to put in your cart!

My first project is a wonderfully reflective birthday card using Mirror Mirror Stamps, Mirror Mirror Die Set, and Mirrored Reflective Specialty Paper.

As soon as I laid eyes on the Mirror Mirror Stamps, I knew I wanted to gold emboss them.  So, I did on some peachy card stock die cut with the Mirror Mirror Die Set.  Next, I used my Mirror Mirror Die Set to cut some Mirrored Reflective Specialty Paper to add the perfect reflective surface to my mirror.  I wanted to make sure I dressed this gorgeous mirror up a little more and I knew the flowers and banner from Vintage Ink Stamps were the perfect addition to my card.  I stamped and colored my flowers with copics and then cut them out with the Vintage Ink Die Set before arranging them around my mirror on this polka dot card front.  My banner was stamped on vellum with a sentiment from Mirror Mirror Stamps and placed across my mirror to finish off the card.     

My next card uses the amazing Hello Beautiful Stamps and Hello Beautiful Dies.

This whole card started with the super cool funky rectangley border like die in the new Hello Beautiful Dies.  I really love the way this looks cut.  I decided to use it as an anchor for my focal piece of my card.  Sort of like the ground?  So, I cut it out and lined the back with a coral/red color peeking through.  Next, I had some fun creating my bird using the Hello Beautiful Stamps.  After cutting him out, I stamped each piece in my selected colors.  He's SO cute!  I embossed my sentiment on my card and added my bird.  When it was done, I added it to this funky background before adding some enamel dots. 

My final card for you during this release shows off more of the Hello Beautiful Stamps and Hello Beautiful Dies.  I also incorporated the new Fringe Scalloped Squares Dies.

I love the amazing flowers in the Hello Beautiful Stamps set and to say I love the birthday sentiment is an understatement!  So, I wanted to frame them up with the Fringe Scalloped Squares Dies.  I created this card for my niece's birthday and she love triangles so I started with this triangle paper and created a frame using Fringe Scalloped Squares Dies.  I wanted to keep the fun up but not bring in too much color so I went with a gray striped paper in the frame opening.  I stamped my sentiment on a vellum strip with the flowers stamped, colored, and cut with Hello Beautiful Dies arranged all around.  The last thing I did for this card was to add a couple enamel hearts.

I hope you enjoyed my creations and will join the rest of the team on the hop.  You'll want to leave comments along the way because Laura gives out a $15 Lil' Inker Designs store credit to a lucky commenter each day of the hop.  It could be you.  I hope you enjoyed out new release!  We love sharing these awesome products with you!  Be sure to keep hopping, here's the list:
